Leverage from CDIC-eligible term deposits provides a cost-effective source of funding for our investments. Yield from the investing operations provides returns to shareholders via distributions that are made tax efficient through MCAN’s mortgage investment corporation (MIC) structure. The basic characteristics of a MIC are:

  • Investment platform focused primarily on residential mortgage lending
  • Taxable income distributed directly to shareholders
  • Effectively a non-taxed flow-through entity
  • Majority of dividends received by shareholders taxed as interest income
  • Attractive investment option for tax-exempt institutions, in addition to tax-deferred and tax-free investment accounts (RRSP, RESP, and TFSA).
